Subject: Marginally interesting
Very brief message that explains proper exit procedure. Aside from the vertically scrolling text and some formal music, there's nothing else to see. In today's theatres, moviegoers will more likely be bombarded with a flurry of advertisements than view instructions such as these.

I found this historical movie promo for theatre audiences interesting. It was good idea to make the movie patrons of that day aware.

Was this something that was projected when the theater had to be emptied, or just something that warned you that if there WAS an emergency you'd go towards the exit you chose? For example, Regal Entertainment Group has a line that says something like: "In case of emergency locate nearest exit, etc." Anyway, this is a decent work, although it's just a piece of scrolling card...

Subject: just text
this is just a text promo that advises people to look for the emergency exit, nothing more nothing less. Pretty underwhelming.

Subject: You have 3 minutes! GO!
Promo telling audiences to walk!!! DO NOT RUN!! to the nearest exit! And try to beat your neighbor to the street!! No wait, that's not what it REALLY means, but you can certainly pick out the bad grammar. It says the theater can be emptied in 3 minutes, which is'nt good if, oh, the ceiling is collapsing.. LOL Highly reccomended!

Subject: Don't Trample Your Neighbor, OK?
Short movie theater announcement advising audience members to check out the nearest exits and, in case of emergency, to walk calmly to them, rather than trampling their fellow patrons. With all the movie theater ephemera IÃÂÃÂve collected, I donÃÂÃÂt have this one, so that gives it historical value. And the style of it is mildly campy.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
